  1. Maybe these are similar to 18k SRP motors - https://www.ebay.com/itm/2PCS-MABUCHI-FF-050SK-11170-Micro-Motor-DC-9V-12V-17500RPM-for-Car-AV-CD-Player/262360539801?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 Also, I'm guessing these puppies have a 5mm centre rib on the hubs so Supergrips will be all the go too.
  2. Thanks warrick, was kinda hoping for something that was lying in the unused draw or parts bin.
  3. The RK rocking type pod will take a FK-180 (long can) with a little bit of modification to the front mount to allow for the terminals and this pod will fit in cars with a RX-41/42/B type pod. I fitted a NC2 almost straight into my 'Cuda with an RK pod and a fit of filing of the plastic.
  4. Hi guys, looking for a short tail version of this car, livery doesn't matter, missing or glued bits OK providing the chassis is good as it won't be going 3d. Awaiting your pm. edit:- prefer standard version with livery rather than plain racing version thanks.
  5. For being "reasonably new to slot cars" you're doing great. ..... You're streets ahead in terms of IT and 3DP than I am and ever hope to be.
  6. You make them Bingo and I'll take 4-5 off your hands. Can't seem to find the early Slot.it Boxer pods anymore which is completely understandable.
  7. I do enjoy this little car but its chassis, which is quite brittle, has been fixed too many times (the arrows show too many breaks). I also have a Scaley Escort that's been converted to sidewinder that punches above its weight so I figured the Alfa could do with similar treatment as it's about the same size. The front of the Scaley Escort chassis and the rear of a Pioneer Charger chassis fit quite nicely with some down sizing.
  8. Cheers Bingo ... just thinking about it, the FK-130 could just go in an inline pod made for long can (FK-180) motors, like the earlier Slot.it Boxer pods, as long as there are mount holes in the same place, as the dimensions other than the length are the same. I'd be a starter for some of these then there are options for 2 motor types.
  9. Nice and neat looking pods there. It would also be great to see someone doing pods for FK-130's (inline or sidewinder). FK130's casings are actually slightly shorter than FF motors although the contacts protrude slightly more but almost exactly the same length including contacts as a FF-050. I know they're not widely used but I've got quite a few that could do with a home.
  10. If you want to do photos https://postimages.org/ is pretty straight forward. I'm pretty useless when it comes to computers so if I can work it out it must be dead simple.
  11. And yet another welcome aboard KRZee
  12. For a 1st time effort that's really good going and well done. As far as colours bleeding through white decal paper goes for roundels or patches that aren't going to be printed on but just cut to size, I give the paper a light flick over with Tamiya white primer 1st which seems to stop the bleed through, although don't know if this'd work if you were going to print over that as well.
  13. I figured that was probably the case and maybe like the listing states, would make a great FJ Easter egg.
  14. On our local auction site ... anyone know anything about it? - https://www.trademe.co.nz/toys-models/slot-cars-tracks/cars/listing-2762311777.htm?rsqid=601620c35a8347a39a5c8020760d3377-001
  15. Sounds fair to me too, although I've just got the Bartlett Camaro pretty much sorted and running 8.8-9sec laps on Wazzas track. Was hoping to mix it with some of those XB-C's this time around but it can wait.
